The dog Zozo in Turkey still goes to his owner’s grave every day to show sadness and nostalgia for a long time. The story brought tears to everyone who saw it and heard it.
The story is told from Ozturk, a Turkish boy. He often visits the grave of his deceased father. On one occasion, the boy discovered a strange white object lying on the grave of his father. Looking closer, he discovered that it was the family dog Zozo. Because he misses his old master, every day he comes here to lie down, close to the grave.
When he was alive, Ozturk’s father raised Zozo from a young age and kept him as a pet in the house. He treats Zozo very well, always feeding Zozo, talking to him and taking him for walks. The emotional attachment was maintained for a long time until his death in February 2014. Everyone at the Ozturk house still took turns taking care of Zozo, but the dog was still very sad and anorexic.
Since Ozturk’s father died, Zozo could no longer see his master, so he went to his grave by himself. Every day he came out here to see his master like when he was alive.
According to Ozturk, Zozo hasn’t missed a day here. When he reached his master’s grave, he lay on top, his front legs hugged the mound, his eyes glittered with sadness. Anyone who witnessed this scene felt emotional. Just like that, Zozo lay still in front of the grave, looking into the distance, as if thinking about the good times he had spent with his master.
Despite being just an animal, Zozo has proven his love for his master, even when he is no longer in this world.
Immediately after the dog’s pictures and stories were shared, netizens couldn’t stop admiring the dog for its affection for its owner.
Hoang Nhan account commented: “This is my favorite dog breed, Kangal is big and strong. My wish is that when I have a family, I will be able to raise a loyal Kangal like this.”
“The dog is the mascot of the 12 zodiac animals, just different from us in language. It always looks at us when talking and feels it all. At the temple, I witnessed it when reading sutras and meditating, it lay dormant and listened until everyone finished reading it, then went somewhere else” – Cheo Beo recounted the story he had witnessed.
There are many touching stories in the world between dogs and their owners. For example, the dog Masha in Russia is still waiting day and night for its late owner to return at Novosibirsk hospital – where the owner has been treated before. Then the dog Tommy in Italy sat faithfully waiting for his owner to pass away at the church. Or like the dog Lao Pan in China lying next to its owner’s grave for 7 days in a row. The most famous is Hachiko, a dog in Japan that spent 9 years at the station waiting for its owner to die.
It can be seen that the affection between loyal dogs and their owners is touching. That non-verbal sentiment is expressed through concrete actions in daily life. Although it is just an animal that acts on instinct, hidden inside every dog is love and attachment to its owner. There seems to be some invisible connection between the two no matter what. That crosses the line between master and servant to become a sacred and lasting friendship.
